Whitepaper explores firewall breaches

Paper details how to investigate, resolve firewall breaches

A program that identifies and resolves fire and life safety deficiencies during construction and renovation projects at Boston's Brigham and Women’s Hospital is detailed in a new whitepaper from EH&E, according to an article on the Medical Design & Construction website.

The complexity of healthcare projects and the pace of the schedule can lead to unexpected compromises in fire barrier integrity. To address this challenge, BWH partnered with the environmental and engineering consultant to develop a new approach to fire stopping and life safety management.

The resulting program won the 2014 IFMA Boston Excellence Award for Best Practices in Sustainability and is described in the whitepaper.
